about 1 billion $ for the tower itself, i think that sounds reasonable for dubai standards.
don't forget the foundation work was not done by samsung and is not included in this contract awared to them.

Looks like they expect to make a tidy profit on this development too! Wonder what they will use the money for?

Maybe to fund Dubai's 2nd WTB (well there are 2 contenders in Dubai for this)

But the main one is Al Nakheel's AL BURJ

look at it this way...

The higher the oil price, the more money from the region pours into dubai, the taller the Burj Dubai gets.

Somthing to think about next time your wincing at the pumps
